Military Training: Instinct vs Training…


“At the time he had believed that Bestia had been a cruel monster, but he had long since come to realise the true purpose of the harsh treatment meted out during training. Soldiers had to keep a cool head in any conditions. They had to be disciplined from within as well as without. That process began on the training ground where they learned to keep their eyes ahead, answer directly and not let themselves become unsettled. It ended when they coolly faced an enemy in battle and put instinct behind them and placed their trust in their training.” (Scarrow, 2014, p.180-181).
